Dansette record players started to take over our home about ten years ago. We have not managed to count them recently but there must be about 150 altogether! Along with my boyfriend John, we have blocked off doorways and even had to buy a smaller dining table to facilitate our collection. What started as a casual interest very quickly turned into an obsession!. We also collect transistor radios, old televisions, jukeboxes and it goes without saying---records!

We decided on this website about our collection after spending many hours searching the internet for other sites featuring Dansettes and collections of record players from the 1950s and 1960s. We found no other websites with much reference to dansettes, so to our knowledge this is the only site of its kind. We hope you  find the site interesting and we welcome your views or comments.please sign the guestbook below or send emails to:

It was my boyfriend John who started the collection. He has a large collection of records and is always on the look-out for suitable containers for his 45s. I must admit that my reaction when he bought the RG 31dansette record player Dansette wasn't quite the same as it is today! It certainly wasn't coming into my house in that dirty state! John explained that this model( which also had a radio) was taller than some dansettes, and would accommodate two rows of 45s perfectly. He removed the turntable followed by a complete transformation thanks to soap and water. By now I was beginning to show more interest in his project, but remained somewhat anxious when he decided to take it with us to a venue in Nottingham where he was booked to DJ. It certainly attracted some attention! We arrived  late and all the seats had been taken - or so we thought! Since that evening 4 years ago the dansette has provided guaranteed seating and even doubles up as somewhere to put drinks if there isn't a table!
